The NEC is a mid-major conference on the rise. For years, the conference had taken a backseat to other leagues that cover the same geographical areas, such as the Big East, Atlantic 10, MAAC and CAA. But little by little, this conference is climbing in the ranks.

LIU-Brooklyn has been a high-quality mid-major the last two seasons, and Robert Morris and Wagner have the potential to make some national headlines this year. Overall, the NEC is not a top mid-major conference, but it has a lot of firepower among its best teams.

This year, LIU will most likely fall from its throne due to the suspensions of its top three scorers, but Robert Morris, Wagner and Quinnipiac will keep the race to this year's NEC crown plenty exciting.

Here is a 2012-13 season preview for the NEC, with team-by-team breakdowns, preseason all-conference awards and predictions for how the final standings will shape up.
